And... here we are what will most likely be the last Purple Friday post of the year! Today is our big rivalry game (the Apple Cup) against our cross-state university, and this year they are doing quite well, while UW is only doing okay... which could make it a very painful game. I certainly hope it's a good game, and that we win, but I'm trying to stay realistic (but still optimistic). We are having brunch with friends and then doing a quickie tailgate (aka just drinking) before the game. We have friends visiting town from California (we were all in band together) and it will be fun to spend some time with them-- away from the kiddos!
I initially had grand plans to do some amazing nail art for the Apple Cup, but with Thanksgiving and my mediocre nail art skills... yeah, it wasn't going to happen. I wish! Maybe next year! So once that idea fell through, I wasn't feeling particularly motivated or inspired to pick a polish. With the help of my husband, who occasionally has a passing interest in my polish hobby, helped pick one out. We settled on Enchanted Polish November 2014, hoping that this will bring us some good luck because the Huskies won the Apple Cup in that month and year. November 2014 is a deep, eggplant purple with a strong linear holographic flame. The formula was good, and went on very smoothly-- I just needed two coats! Love that.
Artificial light (flash):
This is such a gorgeous, deep, dark mysterious purple-- I think it's so lovely! The holo flame is nice and deep (though not totally overwhelming) and it's such a beautiful color. Why have I waited so long to wear this?! At least that tragedy has been remedied!
Go Dawgs! Beat the Cougars!
